InfoSavvy fun

Flying a kite at the beach

Stores may be holding their back-to-school sales, but there’s still time for summer fun.  Speaking of fun have you heard of Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center?

This database has material on a wide range of hobbies: outdoor activities, arts & crafts, home & garden, collecting, etc.  Since I’m upgrading my home office, I searched the database for material on home office storage.  I actually came away from the search with a few tips.  On a lighter note I found info on kites as well.

Info lit needn’t be limited to academic topics.  It also needn’t be dull.  Perhaps the database could be a fun, personally relevant way to introduce databases.
